Summary: short terms:
compact, loud, nice sounding, cheap ultraportables.
AKG in the house ( fun, smooth, bassy, bright-warm & clear presentation )
cool for mainstream song including R&B, but not so for bass heavy genres
you can describe it as a lesser-hifi than K420 for half of its price
Pros: fun full sounding AKG sound signature, nice designed cup
Summary: This was the first AKG product I purchased. I decided to try a more affordable model to get an impression of the AKG sound. I bought this for $28 on a clearance sale, a major discount from the MSRP of $99.
From the moment I played the first track on these, I was blown away by the overall sound signature of this headphone. It is very clear that AKG put the money into what matters, the drivers.
Pros: Compact, impressive mids and bass for the price
Summary: I got this as an impulse buy while I was living in Seoul. I already own the Audio Technica EM7 (which are amazing, BTW) but they were a mess when I had to take them on and off around Campus (although they are great for the street). Boy was I surprised. Their sound is very similar to the Koss PortaPro even when the driver is completely different. It is certainly fuller even when it doesn't seal as well as the PP.
Pros: Great sound, extremely portable, good construction
Summary: Great product. I would recommend this product for people who are not great fans of Bass and those who want to hear the Music in original.The headphone is best used with PC'S and iphone. Under 1k its worth every paise.
Summary: I got this new pair of headphones after reading rave reviews on the internet, and I must say my new AKG K403 is worth every bit the money I invested! The headphone's output is crystal clear and delivers impeccably on a wide range of sounds. The only downside to this otherwise awesome product is its comfort... my ears start to hurt after about an hour's listening.
Summary: I am using this product for last few days and extremely satisfied with its sound quality. Thanks to amazon india for the great price. Although the delivered pack was not in great shape.(due to the poor handling during transit). I also use other over the ear headphones like AKG, Sennheiser , and Koss studio monitors (including portapro), but I am blown away by the sound signature of this K403. Thanks to AKG's R&D for its amazing low cost drivers.
Summary: Everything about the AKG 403 is near perfect. The sound quality, price and also the build. It looks a bit cheap but that wont be a problem once you start using it b'coz AKG gave more importance to the drivers and it shows. Its worth every penny. Go for it, u wont be disappointed.
Summary: Perfect headphones for people who are looking for a natural, crispy clear sound and don't mind listening to music the original old school way without additional bass pumping etc. These headphones have really made my listening more enjoyable and truly experiential. For the price, I think they are an absolute steal!
